What if my energy supplier is offering a way to take part in National Grid DFS?

Your supplier may invite you to take part in their own scheme and you can choose whether to take part with them or with equiwatt.

equiwatt is independent of any suppliers so if you have not been invited or joined your supplier scheme and have a smart meter with half-hourly readings then you can take part with us.

If you are not sure if your smart meter is compatible or need help enabling half-hourly readings, send us an email at hello@equiwatt.com and we will see if we can assist you.

TIP: The easiest way to check if your smart meter is compatible and working in smart mode is to use the free smart meter checker by Citizens Advice.

You can use their checker here - https://smartmetercheck.citizensadvice.org.uk/
